    Yep Mothersmilk, every check up I had my babe was facing posterior and I was stressed out at the thought of back labour pains. I figure it was probably all the driving I did (terrible position for baby) and sitting on my bum on the couch.
    Anyhoo I was too lazy to get into any real routine with exercise (my midwife recommends on hands and knees, scrubbing the floor, yeah right!) but right at the start of labour bub turned anterior and I felt no back pain at all. Straightforward easy labour & birth.
    So I guess while lacking in practical help, my point is babe may well turn with no specific action, otherwise keep yourself sitting forward with a pillow behind your lower back and visualize an anterior labour might help.

    Default Turning a posterior baby in late pregnancy

    Both my babies were posterior during pregnancies and labour.
    Dd1 had to be manually turned during delivery.

    Just make sure bub has turned before you encourage engagement of bubs head.


    Dd2 turned due to my efforts in early labour.

    Hands/knees and rocking.
    Heat pack on groin but cold pack on lower back.
    Hands/knees in the bath.

    Also if your waters break but no contractions or sporadic ones - bub is posterior and DO NOT take an epi till bub has turned around or you are well past 6cm. Otherwise you are highly likely to end up with a cs

    I tried rebozo sifting. Not helpful in turning bub but by god it felt nice to have that weight lifted for a minute!

    Thanks everyone.
    I am scared of a long labour, although DD2 was posterior and still only 4 hours long (although I know that is very short it was longer than DD1 and most of that time was just waiting for bub to move so I could push her out), the pain was horrendous so I feel any longer than 4-5 hours and I would not cope. I am also terrified of ending up with a c-section.
    bub has been trying to turn today after I have focused on the exercises so I am more hopeful than I was yesterday.

    My DD was posterior & placenta was anterior. 3 hr labour, no back pain & bub turned just before she was born. Don't give up hope

    My dear little bugger of a DS was anterior the entire pregnancy and then turned posterior during labour. 2 hours of pushing and a stuck baby later lol but at least I didn't have any back pain.
